It's Cottage, It's Cute and I Still Love It

When I first started reading blogs I really became hooked on all the
ones that focused on cottage decorating.  I remember staying up until the
wee hours of the morning Googling every cottage style blog there
was.  If there was Cottage in a blog name, I was there.  

Although I also love the styles of Mario Buatta, Charles Faudree and
English country homes, I always will have some cottage decorating
in my home.

There is something so innocent, so unpretentious, so naive about it
that just draws me in and touches my soul in a comforting way.

The soft colors, the mismatched china, the ease of it all that is
so friendly.  It's all really hard to resist.  At least it is for me.

Walking into a cottage style room is a bit like eating a freshly
baked sugar cookie.  Yummy and sweet and uncomplicated.
Completely unaware of any problems in life.  

A cottage style room just spreads out it's welcoming arms as
if to say ~ Come on in.  I'll put a smile on your face.

Styles may come and go, yet I think the cottage style is cute and
I still love it.

If you want some sugar ~ go visit my Cottage Cuteness board on
Pinterest.  It's loaded with all things cottage and cute.

Big Texas Hugs,

  1. Totally agree! Nothing says comfort like cottage.


  2. Before it was called Cottage, I called it Grandma's attic. I still love it and my homes always have a bit of it throughout!

    1. Ceekay! So good to hear from you. I know you love it too!

  3. Your pictures always put a smile on my face. Makes me want to walk right on in and have a cup of coffee while we visit awhile. Have a good weekend.

  4. Oh yes . When you put cottage style and fresh baked sugar cookies in the same category I knew I'd found the perfect description of cottage style ! Thank-you.

  5. Love the painted tool box and the plates. I miss my pink and can't wait to find a home to put it in again. Apartment living is not for me.

  6. I agree wholeheartedly, Susan. Once you've had cottage it is hard to let go. I will be visiting your board and, I'm sure, pinning a lot..Happy Weekend..Judy

  7. Cottage is a very comfortable and sweet style. xo Laura

  8. It is a warm cosy look.

  9. Totally agree, its the best look, with warmth and charm and a sense of comfort that no other style provides. I'm just starting to add pink, and my hubs isn't too happy :-{

  10. I agree! So charming and cute!


Oliver and I LOVE and read every comment.
